What are Mini Sessions?
They are short and sweet 30 minute photo shoots done back to back at a pre-determined location. They are photographed using natural light.
Who are Mini Sessions for?
Anyone! They are perfect for a group of friends at a boarding barn, professional shots of barn employees for your website, or a way to give equestrian athletes their own sports photos in a lesson program. Mini Sessions are also a great way for new clients to explore the process before having a longer Full Session.
How much do Mini Sessions cost?
Each 30 minute session is $250. If you have multiple horses or want different looks, you can book multiple sessions or upgrade to a Full Session for more time and images.
How do I set up a Mini Session?
If you already know of a day of sessions, you can send me an email at purplehorsedesigns @gmail.com to get an invoice and confirm your spot. Otherwise, make sure you have at least 2 sessions to schedule and contact me to set a date!
Is there a minimum number of Mini Sessions you need?
Yes - 2 Mini Sessions at the same location.
Can I also get an Equine Studio Session done with my Mini Session?
Sure, but there must be at least 4 Equine Studio Sessions.
Can I change outfits or ride my horse?
It is YOUR 30 minutes to do whatever you'd like! Keep in mind that outfit and tack changes will take away from shooting time and may lower the total number of images you have to choose from. Consider adding a second Mini Session or upgrading to a Full Session to have more time and images.
Can I get black background portraits done?
Maybe. They require a dark area, such as a closed off barn isle. Some locations do not have an area suitable for black background images. Consider booking an Equine Studio Session for black background images.
How will I receive my photos?
Your images will be put in an online gallery, where you will be able to choose the 8 Web Sized Digital Images that are included with your session. You will also be able to order High Resolution Digital Images, Prints, and Canvases through your online gallery.
Can I share the images on social media?
Of course! The 8 Web Sized Digital Images that are included with your session are sized perfectly to be shared easily and quickly online with friends and family. While I appreciate photo credit, it is not required. If you'd like to credit, tag Purple Horse Designs & Photography on Facebook or @purplehorsedesigns on Instagram.
Are High Resolution Digital Images included in the session?
No. You will receive 8 Web Sized Digital Images that are included in your session fee. However, High Resolution Digital Images are available for purchase in your online gallery! Also, check out the Full Sessions, which include High Resolution Digital Images.
How can I get prints or canvas to hang on my wall?
You can order prints or canvas through your online gallery, or by contacting me. If there is a specific type of wall art you would like, such as a metal print, or group of canvases, feel free to contact me to discuss!
